About the Church of the Twelve Holy Apostles in Rome:
Church of the Twelve Holy Apostles in Rome ( also known by its Latin Name, Santi Dodici Apostoli) is a minor Basilica and, as the name implies, is dedicated to the Holy Apostles. It was originally dedicated to St. James and St. Philip, but eventually to all the Apostles.
The relics of Saint James (his femur) and Saint Philip (his foot) are here in the Basilica. We celebrate their Feast Day on May 3.
Although the church is named for these two saints, there are others whose relics are here also….brought for protection as people began digging up the bodies of martyred saints.
Here is a video from Rome Reports describing the Church of the Twelve Holy Apostles.
